Visitor and Bali Love

What a fabulous week!

First Brad's dad and stepmom came to visit for the first time. We did all the sights, and I realized that there are a lot of parts of Singapore even I haven't explored yet. The weather was great and it was so fun to spend a whole week with them vs. our usual quick visits while we are home!

On Friday my friend Zina and I did a Girls Weekend in Bali. This was my second time to Bali and the first time leaving Ford for more than a couple hours, but I knew he was in good hands at home with his daddy and grandparents. We had such an amazing time eating, shopping, sunning, and SLEEPING. I slept 8 straight hours one night and 10 straight hours the next. Absolute heaven! Bali is an amazing side trip from Singpaore for a few reasons.

1. It's a quick 2 hour flight and you can totally do a quick weekend trip (and I'm happy to go back with any future visitors!)
2. Food and pretty much everything is cheaper than in Singapore.
3. The people are so friendly.
4. Boutique shopping. Lots of Australian and Balinese designers.
5. Potato Head Beach Club is a fantastic way to spend a day by the pool/ocean with amazing music.
6. Crazy good restaurants like Chandi, La Lucciola, and Mamasan.
7. Evening drinks oceanside at Potato Head, Ku De Ta, Woo Bar at the W. Gorgeous.

Both of my trips to Bali have been centered around staying in Seminyak. Next trip I want to stay in the rain forest/rice paddies of Ubud (and specifically HERE and take their painting and cooking classes).

I can't believe we are headed home next week already! We're going to start off in CT to see friends and Brad has a meeting in Norwalk, then driving (!) to NC for my best friend and two cousin's weddings back to back to back weekends, and then onto Minnesota for a month! I get goosebumps just thinking about showing Ford Pelican Lake for the first time. I CAN. NOT. WAIT! Life is really good, and I am so so thankful for all of our blessings!
